the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply
OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this

introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning
process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back
into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing
customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate
your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you
